I was hoping it would be able to go ahead, given things really should be much more open by June, including travelling etc. I get that it's hard for the race organisers though, so no criticism intended. Just as you say mrs s, sad not to be there.

I just had a feeling it might go ahead, as they didn't rush to cancel it. But the explanation was spot on. As long as I've known it, it's always been a brilliantly organised race, with safety paramount, so one more year to wait isn't the worst thing in the world.

Mind you, I was just beginning to get in animal mode after a very lax winter. By "animal mode" I mean up to a 20 mile run on a trail at a lofty average of 4mph 😊

OK then, avoid the splinters, no sitting on the fence, who's in the hat for 2022?

I would love to attempt the race. Doubt I will get a place, particularly not in 2022.

10 years! How time flies. I was supporting that year, and had my first run the year after.

Does anyone have any insider knowledge of the race they teased about putting on? It can't be the Fling or the Devil routes. Maybe something starting and ending at Balmaha, similar to the January training weekend full route, out along the low route to Inversnaid and back on the high route. Then a session at the Oak Tree? That's my guess :-)

I've no idea, but it's intriguing! I'm guessing they might put something on that doesn't cross too many local authority areas?

... or maybe from Milngavie to Glencoe, which would suit me perfectly, as I've managed to do this on all four of my WHW starts (2 goblets)

That's a nice distance, and finish in the café (if it's open).

Got something to say?
